I had loads of problems trying to add video files to my player. It wouldnt play the suggested AVI files but I hhad a brainwave and downloaded a free encoder called anyvideoconverter and converted the files I wanted to FLV and iot finally works! Yaaay!
I hope this is helpful. I know I had a heck of a time and was ready to pull out my hair from all the frustration. Good luck!
From what I remember, this player only plays videos that are in AMV format. There is normally a conversion program, supplied on a mini CD-rom, in the box with the player.
If it did not come with one, then search for, and download, a free AMV converter off the internet, aim for one that converts the type of video file you have to AMV, then copy your new AMV video to the player to watch them.
I recommend you have a trial of Video Download Studio. The program is good at video conversion. It helps you convert online videos to all kinds of video and audio format like AVI, WMV, MPEG4, MP3, WMA which can be import to Windows Movie Maker or other mobile devise such as iPod, iPhone, PSP MP3 Player etc Get a free trial from http://www.downloadvideos-convert.com/download-videos-music Hope it can help you more or less!
It is one of those "special" MPEG-4 formats. The CD contains ArcSoft MediaConverter 2 for video conversion for several Insignia players. I can upload it somewhere for you to download, but I think it is commercial software and that technically would be piracy. Please do advise if you need it.
In reading my manual it states that the only supported video format is AVI (Xvid) There is a video conversion program on the drivers CD, but you can also download a newer version from CobyUSA.COM for free. I haven't tried it, but the firmware upgrade I did download from that site worked perfectly and loaded exactly as the manual described. Once This program is installed on your Windows machine and you import video files to it and then load them to your unit. I know this seems complicated, and it may not be necessary if your files are already AVI.
It isn't too much different from converting Wave files to MP3, though there is a learning curve. Take time and don't try to do everything at once. Download the program one day, read the manual the next, try converting a file the next. It just takes patience.
The Coby displays pictures just fine, both BMP and JPEG. Movies are always a little more complicated.
